My husband has been in memory care for nearly 14 months. He has never stopped demanding to go home. Any advice?
He has days now that he’s too confused to make any demands. I could no longer keep either of us safe. So after 3 tough years with Parkinson’s and dementia I had to give up the care the man I promised, in sickness and in health I would care for. I have not been able to release my guilt even when I know with my disability I can’t take care of him. I feel my life is over too. I don’t want to live without him but I know I can’t have him back. At least my head knows. The devastation I feel is so overwhelming. I just can’t seem to get past it. Feel like I’m lost and freefalling. We are 71 years old. Thank you, Joy
